SCOTLAND v FRANCE WOMEN
Saturday 7 March 2020
Six Nations have postponed Scotland v France Six Nations women’s match at Scotstoun Stadium, Glasgow.
This decision has been taken together with Scottish Rugby, the French Rugby Federation (FFR) and Six Nations. The Six Nations CEO has been in constant contact with Scottish Rugby and is in full support of this decision.
The Scottish Government has also been briefed.
The Scotland women’s team returned from northern Italy on Sunday 23 February as their Italy v Scotland Six Nations match was postponed.
This decision has been taken as a result of a Scottish player testing positive for coronavirus today.
Seven members of management and players are self-isolating on medical advice. The player has been admitted to a health care facility as part of the protocol but is otherwise well.
Scottish Rugby has taken advice from the Chief Medical Officer for Scotland and the Scottish Government but ultimately this decision to postpone rests with the rugby authorities.
Scottish Rugby will discuss with Six Nations rescheduled dates for the matches. The tickets for the women’s Scotstoun match will remain valid.
We will provide a further update in due course.
